Happy Beer-day

 Hello and welcome crafty friends!

Here's a fun and punny guy card:

 ...and the inside:

I used embossing paste and the Dots and Dashes stencil

for my background. After cleaning the stencil off, I sprinkled

copper embossing powder onto the paste, and tapped off the excess. 

While the paste dried, I stamped, colored and fussy cut the beer mug.

I used alpha stamps to stamp my punny sentiment and heat embossed.

Once the embossing paste was dry, I heat embossed the copper

embossing powder that I covered it with.

I blended some brown ink around the panel's edges before adhering

all the components together.

I have a lot of nephews in their 20's so this will be sent to one of them. LOL!

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a great day!
